ABOUT THE BOOKSThe Never Girls (series description)

It begins with the sound of little bells and the smell of seawater. Before they know what’s happening, best friends Kate, Mia, Lainey, and Gabby are suddenly whisked to the island of Never Land. There they meet Tinker Bell, Vidia, Queen Clarion, and the other fairies of Pixie Hollow. When magic follows the girls home, they discover that every day can be an adventure.

Each presentation includes Q&A.
